Why Michael Hirst Won’t Kill Off Katheryn Winnick’s Lagertha Anytime Soon

May 19, 2016

DESIGN & TREND – Katheryn Winnick’s Lagertha won’t be going to Valhalla anytime soon.

 

Before the surprising time jump towards the end of the season 5 finale of “Vikings,” Lagertha was brutally stabbed in the chest during the siege on Paris. The shieldmaiden wasn’t seen nor was she mentioned in the flash-forward, but series creator Michael Hirst confirmed in a couple of interviews following the airing of the midseason finale that Lagertha is alive.

 

“There’s a feminist collective in New York who wrote to me a couple years ago and they said, ‘We don’t’ care how many of the male characters you kill off, but if you do anything to Lagertha, you’re in trouble.’ So I’m very careful about that warning,” Hirst told TV Guide.

 

On a more serious note, Hirst said that Lagertha is far too important of a character for him to kill off just yet.

What to Expect from Season 4B

April 29, 2016

IGN – That time jump in Vikings’ Season 4 midseason finale is sure going to shake things up when the series returns later in 2016.

 

In addition to meeting the four new actors playing Ragnar’s sons Ivar, Ubbe, Sigurd and Hvitserk, here’s a preview from showrunner Michael Hirst and actors Travis Fimmel, Alexander Ludwig and Gustaf Skarsgard of what’s to come when Season 4b premieres.

 

1. Ragnar Is Over Being King

 

Vikings has been the story of Ragnar’s ascension to kingship, but looking back on his character’s journey, Fimmel said Ragnar definitely wishes he’d just stayed a farmer. ” Everything’s changed around him, including him. Changed for the worst,” he said.

 

“I feel like it always feels like he’s let down or he doesn’t have the support of the people anymore,” Fimmel added. “He doesn’t know who to trust. The reasons is not what he thought he was doing it for. Everything that’s occurring is not why he started doing these adventures. It’s all for different reasons now — other people’s reasons, not Ragnar’s reasons. So he’s lost the beauty. He feels like the beauty of it’s all gone.”

‘Vikings’ season 4 fall premiere to have a time jump

April 28, 2016

VINE REPORT – The midseason finale for season 4 of History Channel’s hit periodical drama series “Vikings” has just wrapped up. Although the follow-up will not air until fall, the network has already released the sneak peek for episode 11 suggesting that there will be a time jump in the narrative.
In the clip, Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel) tellw his son Ivar the Boneless (Alex Høgh Andersen), “One day, the whole world will know and fear Ivar the Boneless.” Meanwhile, Bjorn Lothbrok (Alexander Ludwig) states, “I no longer know who I am.” Rollo (Clive Standen) also reveals, “Part of myself is still Viking.”

Meanwhile, Lagertha Lothbrok (Katheryn Winnick) states, “There could only be one queen in Kattegat” to which Aslaug (Alyssa Sutherland) quips, “Forget Lagertha, I am the queen.” A montage of more bloody wars and battles then ensues as the video ends with a person saying, “This is a time of war, this is the time to hate!”

 

According to Deadline, young Danish actor Andersen made his debut during the spring finale. His character Ivar who is more dangerous than he appears, was featured as a child before they make their transition in the widely speculated flash forward in the plot. His brothers will also be shown as grown-ups such as Ubbe (Jordan Patrick Smith), Hvitsek (Marco Ilsø), and Sigurd (David Lindström).

 

Based on history, it is expected that Ivar will become one of the leads as he is a prominent Viking leader and a commander of the Great Heathen Army.

 

Show creator Michael Hirst previously teased that the second half of season 4 will focus on Ragnar and how he tries to get back on his feet following his first loss against Rollo. “What happens to him is unbelievable. Prepare to shed a lot of tears, I think,” he hinted.

 

He further teased that with Ragnar’s four sons appearing to be older, they will have different reactions to their father’s return. “Some of them are bitter about it. Some accommodate it. But when Ragnar comes back, they’re confronted by a lot of issues,” Hirst added.

Clive Standen talks Rollo’s big showdown

April 23, 2016

One brother rises, one brother falls

vikings-recap_612x380

Entertainment Weekly  – Season 4 has been a transformative period for Rollo, brother of Ragnar. Having long grown used to living in his brother’s shadow, Rollo betrayed his Viking brethren, allying with the Franks and defending Paris against a new attack from the Northmen. In Thursday’s midseason finale, Rollo met his brother in the field of battle. And the results were bloody. We talked to actor Clive Standen about what led up to this — and what the finale means for his Rollo.SPOILERS, natch!

 

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: It feels like the whole show has led up to the moment when Rollo faces off against Ragnar. What do you think is going through Rollo’s mind, in that moment?

 

CLIVE STANDEN: It’s never been about betraying Ragnar. It’s about existing. Michael [Hirst] and I always held onto this old Swedish proverb: “One wants to be loved, in lack thereof admired, in lack thereof feared, in lack thereof loathed and despised. One wants to instill some sort of emotion in people. The soul trembles before emptiness and desires contact at any price.” We talked about that in season one. He just wants to fit in. He just wants to be acknowledged by his brother.

‘Vikings’ Boss Talks Midseason Finale Twist, Ragnar and Rollo’s Rivalry

April 22, 2016

VARIETY – After three seasons of simmering jealousy, Ragnar Lothbrok’s (Travis Fimmel) rivalry with his brother Rollo (Clive Standen) finally came to a head in a brutal battle in the April 21 epiode — but the long-awaited clash had an unexpected result, with Rollo and his Frankish forces defeating Ragnar and his Viking warriors. The episode then jumped forward several years, revealing that Ragnar left Kattegat after his loss, leaving his sons — Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig), Ivar (Alex Høgh Andersen), Ubbe (Jordan Patrick Smith), Hvitserk (Marco Ilsø) and Sigurd (David Lindstron) to grow up without their father, curious about his fate and (in some cases) resentful of his absence.

 

Variety spoke to “Vikings” creator Michael Hirst about the events of the midseason finale, the introduction of Ragnar’s adult sons and what’s ahead in the back half of Season 4. This interview has been lightly edited and condensed for clarity.

 

Why did now feel like the right time for Ragnar and Rollo’s confrontation, and why was it important for Rollo to win?

 

It was always going to happen. Rollo had rebelled before, when he tried to creep out from under Ragnar’s shadow — the Viking idea is that fame is everything, to be remembered for things, and he just felt that he was never going to be remembered. And then the Seer had told him that if he went to Paris that something extraordinary would happen. And I remember telling Clive that, and Clive was very excited by the idea, because Clive had thought himself that his character was always put upon and always beaten. But I said, “if you look at history, history tells you something different; the character you’re playing becomes one of the most impressive people in Dark Ages Frankia and establishes an empire, basically,” so I’m only following history. Whatever the psychology is and whatever I’m supposed to do myself, I’m actually trying to follow a historical line, because I knew that Rollo became a Count, and that was going to happen because I try to be as truthful as I can be.

 

Ragnar is comprehensively defeated by Rollo and his comprehensive defeat changes everything. It changes the nature of Ragnar’s life, what he chooses to do afterwards, and it has this wonderfully unexpected texture, that Rollo is victorious. Someone told me, “whatever I thought about Rollo, I didn’t expect him to be triumphant, but when this happened, I kind of liked it. I could respect it, because I expected to be sympathetic to Ragnar and yet when Rollo is victorious I kind of liked that.” And I understand that; I feel that myself. I feel good for Rollo — he deserves it.

Michael Hirst on what’s next for Ragnar and his sons

April 22, 2016

And how season 4 was influenced by Hemingway, Tarkovsky, and Nicolas Roeg

 

vikings-recaps_1

 

EW – The midseason finale of Vikings was a bloody, shocking thrill ride. And all that was before – SPOILER ALERT – the massive time jump forward. Ragnar Lothbrok led his Viking warriors into battle against his traitorous brother, Rollo, and despite promising that one brother would die in the ensuing showdown, both great warriors survived the day. But their positions have changed. Ragnar slumped home to Kattegat, defeated. Rollo returned to Paris, triumphant.

 

Years passed. While Ragnar disappeared, his sons grew to young manhood — and certain revelations about their father’s past led a couple of his sons to declare their intention to kill him. They got their chance when Ragnar returned, older and seemingly waiting for someone to kill him and claim his throne. We caught up with Vikings creator/writer Michael Hirst to talk about the first part of season 4 and what awaits us when Vikings returns later this year.

 

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: When we spoke a year ago, you promised a “final reckoning between the brothers” in season 4. Ragnar promises Rollo that one of them will die. Does he want to kill Rollo? Or does he want to die?

 

MICHAEL HIRST: You can read that in different ways. We know that Ragnar didn’t want power, he didn’t choose power. He’s not going to Paris to raid. He’s not interested in trinkets. He feels deeply that his brother has betrayed him, like a lot of people have betrayed him. He’s a very sensitive guy, and you feel the struggle he has had to stay in power. The drug-taking was a way of masking these psychological problems.

 

He’s deliberately, it seems to me, focused on the personal. It was always going to be between [Ragnar and Rollo]. But who knew that Rollo would look strong and fit and be really supercharged, and would motivate his people? Ragnar’s not motivating the Vikings, and I think there’s a slightly suicidal sense about going into battle in that way. He wanted to get into a personal battle with Rollo, and I think he would have been happy if they both died. That’s my feeling, that that would have been a good ending for him.
